Enjoyed your comments on my D8. One of the first models I made was a 1/16 scale 325 CAT excavator that I designed. It was made as a present for a mans retirement, per his son. I made it out of Walnut, Cherry and sycamore. The son had mentioned painting itCAT yellow, however I showed him the natural wood and he was happy with it that way. I will post it some day. Later

Hey Crowie, Just read one of your posts about the cold of your open under house workshop. As that forum is not conducive for such bragger, how about a few pickies of it here in the dedicated ”workshop bucket” so that we can admire your Spartan lifestyle?

If you have some at WAWF then please point me 2 em…

..., very cramped!!...

- crowie


Thanks.

BTW. If you get claustrophobic, you can always get some compressed air that when let out will expand...

Just another one of my priceless suggestions..
